We invite you to submit an abstract to our Fall AGU session:
*SA012 "Geomagnetic Storms and Substorms and the SAPS
Magnetosphere-Ionosphere-Thermosphere Science Challenge: Towards a
Synthesis of Observations, Modeling, and Theory"*
Geomagnetic storms and substorms have dramatic consequences for the
coupled Magnetosphere-Ionosphere-Thermosphere (M-I-T) system that test
our system-level understanding. One particularly well-suited science
target is the Sub-Auroral Polarization Stream (SAPS), understood as a
band of enhanced poleward-directed (ionosphere) / radially directed
(magnetosphere) electric field that has a width of one to several
degrees of magnetic latitude and extends across many hours of MLT in the
evening sector in regions equatorward of the auroral electron
precipitation boundary. This session welcomes presentations that address
ionospheric and thermospheric dynamics resulting from M-I-T coupling
with specific focus on the cross-domain connections to magnetospheric
drivers. Experimental results of particular interest include
ground-based and satellite measurements of ionospheric densities,
composition, and flows in sub-auroral regions, thermospheric response,
optical imaging, and magnetospheric plasma, fields, and currents.
Simulations of the coupled system are sought. We welcome comprehensive
analyses of events selected in the recent CEDAR-GEM SAPS challenge.
The session is cross-listed in the Aeronomy and Magnetospheric Physics
sections. The session ID is 13946.
The submission deadline is 3 August. Click here to submit an abstract to

[CCMC], and Philip J. Erickson [MIT Haystack]
